We just got these magnificent reels in stock and all we can say is OMG! The bar has been raised! Back in the 1980’s Shimano introduced the Calcutta Round Casting Reel. At that time it was an absolute revolution for reels with its smooth gearing, great balance, and almost “bullet-proof” function and design. It was expensive given most other reels were selling for about $50 to $60, but at $100 it was well worth the investment. Basically it was a “lifetime” reel. One that you could pass on to your kids and grandkids.
Now comes the Calcutta “D” reels and to say they are a revolution would be this year’s biggest understatement. The drag is new, the gearing is new and stronger, the handles are redesigned, the reel profile is smaller but stronger, and overall this is by far the best round casting reel on the market – bar none. We know that low profile casting reels are the current rage, but don’t judge too quickly. Only after you have had one of these babies in your hand will you truly appreciate just what an amazing piece of machinery it really is. Far beyond ANY reel you have ever used before!
New to the Calcutta “D” reels is the Shimano X-Drag which means a smoother, stronger drag that will hold up with even the biggest fish. Also new is the X-Ship technology spool design which simply means longer casts as well as much better free-spooling. Add to that the S Body Rigidity, smaller overall profile, longer power handle, and you have the world’s best round casting reel that will still be providing reliable fish-catching performance to your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. They that good.
Given this reel’s design and given the production limits at Shimano, we have no doubt these reels will be in very short supply for many months to come once the initial shipment has been sold through. Word will start getting out and when you decide you want one it may not be available, so please seriously consider placing an order Now to make sure you get one while we have them in stock.
This marvelous reel will be available in 200, 300, and 400 sizes and right now we have all right hand retrieve models and some of the Left hand models in stock. Supplies are limited, so seriously consider taking one of these great reels for a spin. We promise you will be amazed!
Hey, it’s summer and so far the sun and temperatures have been nothing less than absolutely brutal. It’s a great time to buy a new pair of sunglasses and we got the BEST available. If you’re like us you have probably searched around for sunglasses that are really clear and polarized and, again if like us, been somewhat disappointed. We’ve tried Oakley, Smith, Ray-Ban, Serengeti, you name it. They have all been good, but not great. Then we tried Costa Del Mar. Wow! Perfect! Reasonably priced. Great lenses. Good looking. And come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!
American Legacy Fishing carries over 200 different styles and will be happy to help you pick the perfect pair. We know sometimes it’s hard to buy sunglasses on line, but we can assure you if you aren’t 100% happy with any Costa Del Mar sunglasses just send them back for a full refund or another style. We’re that sure you are missing out if you don’t have a pair of Costa’s.
Quick story: We spent almost a year researching sunglasses brands and asked many pros as well as those in the fishing industry just who made the best sunglasses for fishermen. Guess what? EVERY response we got said we had to go with Costa. Now that we have these in stock all we can say is They Were Right!
Folks, trust us on this one. These are simply the best sunglasses you will ever won. Try them and you will agree!
This is one of 2012’s hottest saltwater lures and already legendary for catching some B-I-G fish. These lures were designed in Japan and safe to say are nothing short of fish catching machines. They cast a mile and with their internal, moving weight create an erratic pop and dive action that saltwater fish go crazy over. And the hooks? Friggin SHARP! Really, really SHARP with super strong rings attaching them to the lure.
There are two sizes: 6.3″ long – 2 oz weight and 7.5″ long – 3 oz weight and 6 colors: Blue Sardine, Clear Silver, Green Mack, Black Silver, Pink Silver, and Purple Gold. All float and are made for durability. Best of all, these lures are reasonably priced at $24.99 and $29.99 respectively.
We have most in stock as of now, but demand has been, shall we say, overwhelming, so if you’re a saltwater fisherman (or want to try something different on that trophy muskie or northern pike) seriously consider the new Shimano Orca as an addition to your tackle box arsenal.
OK, it’s been one hot summer so far. Here in southern Indiana we’ve already seen 107 degrees and we’re in a confirmed drought. That also means there’s been lots of sun. No clouds. No rain. Everyone has become increasingly aware that the sun is NOT your friend and can actually do some serious damage not only when you’re out on the water, but months or years after. So do yourself a favor and get some BUFF and protect yourself for a very few $’s. Get some Buff Headwear. This is a universal piece of multiuse clothing that is: a) a balaclava, b) a “do rag”, c) a cap, d) a hair tie, e) a headband, f) a hood, g) a neck gaiter, h) a sun guard, i) a wristband, j) a pirate cap, k) a hair band, l) a foulard, m) a neckerchief and n) a hat liner. All out of one piece of clothing.
Now we’re not faddists, but Buff Headwear is “hot” and oftentimes hard to get. But, we have them in stock in many, many different colors and designs. Best of all, they’re really inexpensive and can protect you from that damaging summer sun. If you are a diehard fisherman and believe even an iota is true about the harmful effects of the sun this is your product. Light, technical wicking fabric that helps you avoid the sun and is cool as well. Take a look at our Buff Headwear . It’s a product that you may not have known you need, but we can assure you it will be a great investment not only this summer, but in the years to come when the damage becomes apparent.

The “right way” to really sharpen a good fillet knife is with a set of whetstones specifically designed for putting a razor’s edge on the knife. But, such systems are cumbersome to say the least, require some skill in order to get the knife really, really sharp, and are in no way very portable. Yes, they are the best, but when you’re out in the field and your knife gets dull (hopefully because of all the fish or game you have bagged) these systems just are that practical. So we wanted to offer the case hardened sharpening system.
For over a year we’ve been looking for a “quick” knife sharpening tool or tools that we could offer not only for our World’sBest Fillet Knife, but for all knives, even the “quick to dull” stainless steel models that are so popular today. Up until now everything we looked at was, well, shall we say “cheap”. Not necessarily in price, but in performance. All too often we ended up with a sharp blade, but took so much metal off the blade that it just wasn’t something we could recommend. Worse, the edge went away very quickly.
Then we found Edgemaker. This system is Made In The USA and actually meets our very strict requirements. There are two tools that, when used properly, will put a great edge on any knife and Voila, will actually last quite a long time. And the knife will be very, very sharp! Best of all, both tools will easily fit in your tackle box. Price for this Edgemaker Sharpening System Kit is a very reasonable $29.95 If you fillet fish then this is a tool you definitely need!
WOW! Our World’s Best Filet Knife is finally back in stock! To celebrate and to thank you for your patience we have these amazing knives on sale for $49.99 (normally $74.99)! In the world of fillet knives this is a one-of-a-kind knife and one you will want to pass down to your kids or grandkids (once they know proper knife handling skills).
